GITEP - Gloucestershire Initial Teacher Education Partnership

GITEP is a highly successful partnership between the Gloucestershire Association of Secondary Headteachers and the University of Gloucestershire. GITEP's aim is to recruit and train high calibre teachers who have the ability to inspire and influence the lives of young people of all abilities, ensuring the best outcomes for the pupils of our 50 partnership schools.

As a prospective trainee, you will be guided through the various routes to achieving Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) to determine the most appropriate route for you. QTS can be achieved through either the traditional SCITT and PGCE or the newer routes of School Direct and School Direct Salaried.

Whichever route you chose you will spend most of your time in school, learning from teaching colleagues who are expert practitioners, and by participating alongside your peers in weekly subject pathway sessions, led by a school based Subject Leader.

In addition to this time spent in school, Professional Preparation weeks bring you together with the whole GITEP cohort for activities designed to help you meet the Teachers' Standards.

A high proportion of our trainees go on to gain employment within our partnership schools and subsequently continue to be supported throughout their induction year and beyond through the professional development arm of Gloucestershire Association of Secondary Headteachers.
